jobs and the economy. really? but will there be anything new? or just more green energy and higher taxes? we've heard that stuff before, but let's go to our panel. here's robert wolfe host of impact players on reuters tv. cnbc contributor bob lutz. former gm vice chair and author of car guys versus bean counters. and michael steele former republican national committee chairman. welcome, gentlemen. bob lutz, let me go to you. what do you want to hear from the president tomorrow night? >> well, i'd like to hear a genuine jobs creation scheme, a reduction or certainly a mitigation of a lot of current regulations. and less emphasis on green energy schemes. i was very somewhat frightened by the inaugural address citing global warming as the -- co2 reduction as the number one priority. that sounds to me like more green energy schemes and a deemphasis on something like exploiting the nation's plentiful shale gas reserves which if properly exploited could make us hugely competitive as a manufacturer. but i'm afraid all that's going to be on the back burner because according to the inaugura
, climate change, green energy. here's my take. if it was going to work all this throwing more, it's going to work to throw the economy up, it would have already worked. it's more of the same from mr. obama but these government planning efforts have never worked. we have a subpar 2% growth company and they're planning and spending and directing will never work. me? i was just hoping for some real economic growth measures, as i said, like a corporate tax reform. what's wrong with that? keystone pipeline, more limited rnme but it was not to be, at least not last evening. let's talk to our guests. we got a full house tonight. joining me tonight is austen golsby and we're delighted to have kelly ann conway and forbes's magazine executive editor. this is the best economic growth message of the last 24 hours and it came from senator marco rubio. >> presidents in both parties from john frj. kennedy to ronal reagan have known a free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. >> i want to start with that. no planning, no government direction, no subsidies, no collective action
exploiting the north american energy boom. and i think the keystone -- >> you know, when he says manufacturing, katie, he's thinking about solar, windmills -- >> oh, no way, larry. >> he's thinking about battery companies that we subsidize -- >> 1% of the energy portfolio. >> his view of manufacturing is much different than my view of manufacturing. is it different than your view of manufacturing? >> it is. and i think if you look at the president that we saw during the last bits of the campaign when he started to sound like a texas republican when it came to drilling and expanding our energy independence it's quite at odds of where he is today, sort of caught between his two lovers, on the one side we have the environmentalists and on the other we have labor. i ultimately think he's going to move forward with it. i hope he does. we need the jobs. the unions are pretty clear that this country needs those jobs. and frankly we need to move in the direction of more energy independence, larry. >> how about this? this is a little machiavellian, which is why i love it. it's very cynica
increasing taxes and that is not going to take care of this pro growth tax reform. using energy resources. those are the types of proposals that he needs to make. that is what creates a lot of revenue. that would reduce our deficits but that is not the change of the course unfortunately. >> might obama surprise us tonight? larry summers wrote about this. might he surprise us and be more pro growth? >> he is. he has to have a strong middle class. the middle class has been under attack. and i think what you are boeing to see this president is going to want to put middle class people to work. we want to help the middle class but we have had the obama formula. we have had the spending and the temporary tax rebates and we haven't had the growth. where is the goods on this where is the beef on this? >> when we have had what we had in 2008, i think we did pretty well from that. it is true. in order to build this country. you have to have a strong middle class. the top 1% makes 225 times as much as the bottom. i don't think we ought to raise taxes but we need to make sure the middle chas gclass g
force, energy. those are the issues that really drive us. we want manufacturers in the united states but as long as we have the policies that we have in washington right now, they're not goung vest here. in fact, two-thirds of the manufacturers say that the climate in washington is such that they do not want continue to vest. >> i get that. jay timmons, thank you for being here. diana roth, jim pet koukis, what do you think of this? >> president obama doesn't count oil as manufacturing. he picks and chooses between good manufacturing and bad manufactures. >> am i wrong to ask the request about what constitutes manufacturing? i don't understand that. what's manufacturing? >> i don't think it's an unfair question. i think the larger story is why we're picking any one particular industry over another. at the end of the day, you want jobs to be created where they're going to be created and you doesn't want anybody picking that particular industry. i don't know why manufacturing is better than toy building or home building or anything else. >> it's picking winners and losers, isn't it? th
